The past year has once again seen a considerable number of decisions which highlight the complexities of administrative law. The most noteworthy decisions are three decisions of the Supreme Court of Canada—one dealing with standards of review, one dealing with reasons, and one dealing with multiple forums and issue estoppel. Of course, issues such as standing and other aspects of procedural fairness have continued to attract judicial attention as well.
